Catterick hosts a nine-race card, which gets underway at 1:45pm, on Tuesday and the first six races will represent the Tote Placepot pool.
With several £1000+ dividends in recent days, the Placepot is a great way to enjoy big dividends from small stakes. With a little luck, there could be another big win for those who successfully weave through the card with a placed horse in each leg.
How's the Going?
The going at Catterick on Tuesday is described as “Good” all over. With showers expected in the area, do look out for minor alterations but it should be a level playing surface for all comers.
The Big Trend:
Since racing resumed, LUKE MORRIS has fired in two winners from four runners at Catterick and he heads to the North Yorkshire venue on Tuesday in search of further riches. His best ride has got to be ROAD TO PARIS (2:45pm, Leg 3). This stoutly-bred son of Champs Elysees is a strong stayer and finished the 2019 campaign with a fabulous late rattle of wins.
Winning three of his last five and two seconds besides, he is a consistent stayer and there could be more to come.
Tim Easterby’s EXCESSABLE is a consistent performer on the clock and with a long run of reasonable efforts in defeat, his handicap mark has slipped to a very workable 58 for this six furlong sprint. The six-time winner is tricky to catch right, but he’s nicely drawn in stall three here and seems very likely to put up a bold bid under Duran Fentiman.
Outsider to Consider:
The two market leaders, Longroom and Red Pike, arrive in hot form but are up in the weights and not getting younger at the ages of eight and nine respectively. Eric Alston’s four-year-old filly in the race, FOX HILL, could represent a bit of value, bringing decent experience and younger legs to the table.
She ran poorly at Leicester last time out and is probably a shade high in the handicap, however she is a course winner and the ground will be fine for her.
We won’t beat around the bush, this is a tricky pool to negotiate with competitive fields throughout. Remorselessly, Leg 6 is a 12-runner handicap over seven furlongs. If you get that far, you’d like to be in the best position possible to land the spoils.
With that train of thought in mind, MIDNITE BRIDE and PASSING NOD look a very agreeable duo to have on your perm. The former is knocking on the door of a win for Kevin Ryan, while the former arrives on a hat-trick bid.
Our Placepot Perm:
Leg 1: 2,11 Leg 2: 1,3 Leg 3: 1,2,6 Leg 4: 5 Leg 5: 1,3 Leg 6: 5,9
2 x 2 x 3 x 1 x 2 x 2 = 48 lines
